The 12 finalists for 2018 Oklahoma Teacher of the Year were announced July 10. All finalists are teachers of the year for their districts and were selected after their application packets were reviewed by a panel that included educators, members of the business community, legislators and nonprofit partners. A separate panel selected the Oklahoma Teacher of the Year after a day of extensive interviews with the candidates.
